With 'open tabs in background' enabled, links which are set to open apps do not open correctly--particularly Zoom meeting links, Discord join links, and any other chat or media application. They open fine 'usually' when the link loads in the foreground.

This makes me unable to open some links or have to hack a bit such as quickly tapping the tab when it opens or removing the "#success" at the end of zoom links. This does not always work.

Hi all,

Currently on the latest beta on macOS Big Sur v11 beta (20A5364e).

Crashing of tabs has at least been resolved since previous versions but I am having an endless usability issue. I can have 2-5+ tabs open and clicking on the tab itself appears dead/unresponsive. Clicking a few more times (in different areas of the tab) or selecting another tab then switching back results in the tab being selected/usable/active again.

I am unable to find any common way to replicate this or reason for it - the sites in the tabs are always very much different. It's not the web site that becomes unresponsive as even when opening multiple 'new' tabs, the same issue can occur without even loading a site.

Detailed version info included.

If you lower mtu to 400 when using Firefox The problem occurs in the latest version 78.3esr.

The site doesn't open properly You can reconnect countless times over and over again, The page does not open.

This issue did not occur in the 68.12esr version.

There was no problem in the lower version even in the non-esr version. When the version was upgraded, the symptoms appeared. I've been using 68.12esr.

I can not speak English well.

Korea is a country that blocks sites using https. Adjusting mtu is a necessary measure for Koreans.

I was unable to enter a reference number on a government website. The error message was that I was using an incorrect format. The format was xxxx-xxxx-xxxx. I was able to entering the same number and format correctly using Microsoft Edge. I have been having intermittent problems entering secure information ever since Firefox started using 'Enhanced Tracking Protection' by default. However, in this case, switching off Enhanced Tracking Protection did not help. Does anyone have any ideas where the problem is? Thanks.

Firefox does not download certain files anymore. I have no idea which type. I have been doing downloads for years.

I have been reading through the help area. I have tried (I hope) erverything, but with no success.

I can download drivers from NVIDIA home page. I can't download firmware from ASUS home page. The browser just blinks very quickly and that is it. I am able to download documents (they used to open in Acrobat - now in firefox).

I have tried the "save" mode. I have disabled all add-on permanently. I have no special firewalls.

As all customers always say: I haven't changed a thing - it just doesn't work anymore.

I have a feeling this problem started with release 80.

The funny thing is, I have ten (10) PCs (Win7/Win10) and all show the same symptoms.

I have been spending "days" with this. Would appreciate help - THANKS !!

EDIT: other browsers work, but I don't want to use other browsers.

Forgot to mention, that I followed the troubleshoot advice (handler.json delete).

Anyone any ideas, tips or recommendations?

=======================================================

Did a little research. This problem has appeared with rel/ver 79. The problem shows up as soon as the check mark is removed in the options. Which check mark? Well:

TOOLS

   OPTIONS
      GENEREL
          TABS
               uncheck the box "open links in tabs instead of new windows" 

Took me quite a while to find what/where the problem is.

If you are interested - just try the following sequence of "commands":

Go to the homepage of "ASUS.COM" Position on the "service" option. Click on the "service and support" option in the drop-down menu. Select the pic showing a router (wlan and networks). Select "wireless router" as the product range (first box). Then select i.e. "RT-AC66U" as product model (second box). Then select "Drivers & Tools". Then select "BIOS and FIRMWARE". AND then try downloading.

This is where MY browser starting with rel 79 just blinks and inserts a little notice which reads i.e. "2020/09/29 downloaded" and a little circle with an arrow in it pointing downwards.

But nothing is downloaded.

===============================================================

HOPE A DEVELOPER READS THIS.

Either ASUS is doing something strange or firefox as of rel 79 has changed its behavior.

To repeat myself: I can download on other sites (like drivers for NVIDIA GPUs) just fine. So far, it just seems to be a problem with ASUS.

Have a nice day.

Hey there, I and my colleagues who use Linux have all started seeing massive performance decrease & tabs frequently reporting "a web page is slowing down your browser" issues starting around August 5 or 6 of this year. I started a complaint thread in my company slack about this on August 6, and unrelated to that, someone else started a similar thread on august 18.

At first I thought it was just me, or just some quirk of my linux distribution, or a pattern of using the software. But I actually switched Linux distros from Ubuntu to Arch to see if it would help (it didn't) and now that I've seen the behavior consistently across a whole bunch of different apps, I think it's a bug. It seems to affect heavier webapps like Quip and Slack, much more so than lighter webpages. Again, nothing was wrong before August of this year and now, depending on how I use my computer, I frequently get "a web page is slowing down your browser", cpus pegged to 100%, which ends up with me closing tabs/ sometimes restarting firefox multiple times per day.

Nobody on Chrome is complaining about similar issues.

I did run the profiler for a bit while such an issue was going on, and am happy to share it, although it has slightly-private information from one of our company slacks and I don't know if this forum is public.

With 81, i select Microsoft Print to pdf or Adobe PDF printer, then it either simply reverts to the webpage or for a moment brings up the directory selection and file naming window, which then disappears within a second, and i am back to the original webpage.

I reverted to FF 80, both Print to PDF printers worked perfectly.

I allowed the upgrade to 81, once again, same failures.

I have two windows of firefox open, one on my center monitor and one on my right monitor, though this issue is present no matter the arrangement. One window (the primary one) works as normal, while the other window is broken. The UI works fine, tab bar, menus, URL bar, etc. works fine. The initial tab, the tab that I closed the browser on, shows up and is usable, even if you click links and load new pages, but any other tab shows up as completely white. The tabs still function, as in I can click play on the tab bar and it plays youtube videos, but the items aren't clickable.

Things I've tried:

  • Refreshing tabs: Issue persists
  • Safe mode: Issue persists
  • Dragging an active tab from the functioning window: Shows background color, and occasionally works.
  • Dragging a hibernated tab from the functioning window: Only works if the tab finishes loading before you move it, otherwise the new tab is blank.

I need to transfer my FF profile from a Sony to Lenovo. The hardest challenge should be moving from a Win 7 to a Win 10, but I'm not really worried about that. The huge problem is that for almost a week FF stopped pushing web notifications of any sort of any of the platforms I've authorized. Important (?) note: randomly a couple days ago the notifications started working for no reason, I wasn't doing anything in specific, just working. I took screenshots to see if the debugging - runtime: about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox#serviceworkers and saw changes here and there but nothing that could shed light as to why this happened. Example: if the notifications working were all running or stopped but saying fetching or not fetching.. there weren't coincidences that IO could find anyway. I shut down the laptop, the next day the notifications were gone again and have been gone ever since. I think yesterday or the day before I downloaded FF again and ran it, but I don't think that did anything. I didn't uninstall it, I wasn't sure if doing so could worsen the problem in such a way I wasn't gonna be able to open FF at all. I know nothing about computers, any suggestion would be appreciated. I don't dare to move nor transfer anything to the new laptop afraid to keep having the same problem or worse in there too, not to mention I'm not familiar with it so I might have an ever harder time finding a work-around that could make something that doesn't work, work. My doubt is: whatever it is that is causing this defect, if I transfer this profile to the new laptop, will it continue to happen in there as well? Is it possible it's something wrong within the profile itself and if so what can I do to transfer all this data to the new laptop? I really need his profile. Is there anything I can do to know where this problem is coming from? Am I causing the problem unwillingly, but most importantly, will this keep happening in the Lenovo? Is there any way to troubleshoot this specific issue to make sure wtv it is, won't be transferred within the profile to the new laptop so it won't fail in there as well? Please let me know if you need more information, any tips would be appreciated
